Possible Sky Clearing for Orionid Meteor Shower Tonight

Although the weather has been a bit challenging the past week.  It is possible that there will be a clearing tonight for the Orionid Meteor Shower.

If the skies are clear, the observatory will open for the night, starting at around 8 PM.  The shower will intensify around 11 PM or so, as the constellation Orion clears the site’s horizon.  The meteor shower would occur at its highest frequency as the constellation approaches the zenith position (straight up) in the sky later in the night.

Keep an eye here for sky condition information:
